don't see it happening. and i see a lot of this idea about how we're going to get deficits under control and in plans in time courtesy of tax hikes, but not a lot of spending cuts. >> well, a couple things. first of all, if you look at this budget, it shows the that the deficits are steadily decreasing, year by year. as you know, we've cut them in half over the last four years. and this budget puts the them on a continuing downward trajectory, number one. >> but they are still relying on tax hikes. $1 trillion worth over the next year. and i'm wondering, where are the savings? because the president and republicans, too, there were no fair players on this, they reversed what were going to be minor cost of living juchlgts in the last deal. they scrapped that altogether. writes the will for getting this under control? >> two things. i think if you look in the medicare area, the president's budget identifies some additional efficiencieefficienc that are saved, that are cut, not by harming beneficiaries, but by reducing and continue to reduce some of the overpayments to the private in

broken, it's costing taxpayer money, covered california will be going into deficit -- >> the irony there -- you know your state betterment you have a democratic governor, democrats in control of both houses in the legislature. i see this in maryland where the democrats run the show, enif you want to lay it on the republicans and whether they go along, it's fraction of the problems they're encountering now. so you have to worry more, those who are pushing the healthcare law, be they on left or the right. you have to look under your own hood because it's your own party's governors jostling the problem. >> they don't want to look under their own hood. they want to blame the republicans. blame everybody but themselves -- >> or just rush the signups like we saw in maryland and ask questions later, just get them in, get them in, get them. in, ask questions later. >> they're in panic mode. they see the failure and they want to shift the blame, but what has to happen, the governors and the state legislatures that are supporting obamacare, the senators and congressmen that are supporting ob
not do nearly enough to tackle the entitlement program. thepoint has been made deficit has come down so much in the short term, and that is true but there was a fiscal problem facing the country. the real problem is the medium and long-term debt. the real problem is dealing with health care, aging population and health reforms. -- let mee ask about ask about the private deck with a tax break the industry has gotten for years. it sounds like both sides ones that do go away. does that mean it will? not think so. far from obvious that both sides want it to go away. speaking fellow republicans. many walked away from that as soon as it came out. carried interest belongs as part of a broader tax reform, but none actually tax it correctly. it withet serious about something with integrity it is just convenient, and that is no way to do tax policy. real,ld do some meaningful tax reform. really hurt his base if he takes on entitlement reform in a way that means cutting entitlements in the future. >> can i say something about that? >> was that my? -- mya? hurting his about base might be true polit
. at a time when our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years we have to decide if we're going to keep squeezing the middle class or reduce deficits responsibly while taking steps to grow the middle class. >> that was president obama outlining his $4 trillion budget for 2015 setting the stage for another budget fight. it calls for growing are the tax expansion. the president says he's paying for all of this by closing loopholes, one of which is wall street's favorite loophole which allows hedge fund managers to count their investments as income instead of capital gains. many think it faces a long road because of republicans in the house. to walk us through the budget battle, jimmy williams, an opinion writer for u.s. news.com and an msnbc contributor. how are you? >> how are you, hello. >> i want to start with one of the more important things which is that child care tax credit. this is big for people. when you look at the numbers from the white house, you're talking about well over 1.5 million people effected, $600 for a lot of folks with children under five years old. my view
not a wit of care to the working and unemployed. they talk about obsessions with deficits and debt. and then they refuse to raise revenue in any form or fashion. >> advertisement reform with the chained cpi last year. they don't back him when he is trying to do what they say they want to do. >> they predicate their position on ignorance. and nobody actually calling them out. i mean, the sound that you played at the beginning of this segment, that's the -- that's all you need to know about the republican party. on the one hand, on the other hand. and in the meantime, if you ever ask them for a meaningful piece of policy, of governable policy, they have nothing. >> you know the guy's running around a big arena, trying to get to the farthest right. well, they always want to be the hardest rail to the right. take a look at lindsey graham here, who seems oftentimes a reasonable guy, but he is so scared of looking reasonable because it will get him killed in south carolina. on twitter he wrote today, isn't it original? it started with benghazi. when you kill americans and nobody pays a p
a real deficit. he let putin bring him down the garden path on syria, a country that was supposed to have given up all its kemic am weapons by february but has only given up 11% of them. what accountability have we heard demanded by the president. whether it's ukraine, china, syria, where wherever we see him, he just doesn't have what it takes to be taken seriously by foreign leaders. >> is he credible? what do you think? >> i think he's more than credible. for example, if you go back and look at 208 when russia went into georgia, we did nothing. that was at the height of our involvement in iraq and afghanistan. he's got the international community to put sanctions. these aren't going to be the treasury. these have to be international sanctions. nobody, even the harshest critic, wants to put boots on the ground. >> let me give you an example of why i think the credibility thing is a little bit tricky. look at what the president said at one point today. it's remarkable. >> one thing right away is to work with the administration to help buy assistance to the ukrainians to the people and tha
that will be unveiled in about a week. he's going to turn away from deficit reduction, go to government spending. he doesn't call it stimulus, spending but instead calls it investment. infrastructure, highway repair issues will create jobs and help obviously in terms of rebuilding the country. the president in the blue state of minnesota rather than going to red states, more republican states where health care may be unpopular. interesting. bill clinton as you know was in kentucky trying to help out alison grimes, a democratic senate candidate trying to take the seat currently held by republican mitch mcconnell. when senate majority leader harry reid was pressed on why president obama isn't going out to red states, he had an interesting answer. >> we have one president that's been going every place and that's clinton. he's traveling around campaigning for everybody doing a great job. >> there you have the top senate democrat suggesting the former president may be a better asset right now than the current president. bottom line, though, of course, we'll see president obama, current president, raising
deficit disorder,
talked perfect sense. the is nothing moral about running up huge deficits about out of control welfare bills. we do not do with these problems, the whole country will be poorer. we should listen to the former arch bishop of canterbury. he said the churches should be aware of the dangers of blindly defending a gargantuan welfare budget that every serious alliteration would cut as a matter of economic common sense. i think serious politicians have to engage in it and that should go for everybody. i join my honorable friend's and congratulate the team on their brilliant performance at the winter olympics. as immediate threat of flood passes, some levels are still underwater and hundreds of businesses and farms are still struggling to recover. the committee on climate change, the u.k. statistical authority have all said the government investment in flood defenses -- in the likes of this, does the prime minister think it is right to revisit the plan for investment in flood defense? >> we will look carefully at the plans. we have set out spending figures all the way out through 2020, not all

spending and not deficit reduction. the top republican on the senate budget committee says he wants to know when the president is going to get serious. >> this budget will not work. it's bad for america. it does not get us off the debt course we're on. it has total flimflam in it. in that it projects that we're going to raise taxes another $1.75 trillion. >> house budget chairman paul ryan said the president's budget is not a serious document. it is a campaign brochure. and aides say the soon to be le balance. >> mike emanuel live on the hill, thank you. >>> still ahead, what is the ukraine crisis doing to the u.s. space program. >>> first, the primary season kicks off in texas. it's eb. want to give your family the very best in taste, freshness, and nutrition? it's eb. want to give them more vitamins, omega 3s, and less saturated fat? it's eb. eggland's best eggs. eb's. the only eggs that make better taste and better nutrition... easy. eggland's best eggs. better taste. better nutrition. better eggs. it's eb. better eggs. your hepatitis c.forget it's slow moving, you tell yourself. i have
, the deficits are going on and they are ridiculous. cut the military budgets, they do not have the money for different things. i live in baltimore city. years lived here over 33 and our mayor is such a manipulator. this is how bad it is. mayoryears ago, our manipulator that she is, she is good at selling stuff. million dollars in federal funds for infrastructure and used them to pave the roads in the downtown district, which were not in bad shape, so they could meet the requirements to have a race on labor day. what it really was, the organizers of open wheel racing -- it failed for three years. the second year she told these whopping lies about the revenue. host: julian, greensboro, north carolina. caller: it is your responsible to invest in infrastructure as the government. if you look back in the industrial revolution, the technological advances in transportation would have been impossible without the investment of private investors. the government has not been one to advance the technology. it is up to private investors to put that money out. if you look at your report card, 3.6 tril
's ever proposed for, not for reducing deficit but more domestic spending. we've had huge spending increases, so those are such nonstarters, i don't see how you get common ground. granted, we're living under another budget agreement for now. but it's clear he's moving farther to the left to try and -- for those reasons and he's not trying to move to the middle. >> congressman, you said that three times, he's moved to the left, it's a nonstarter. does that mean i can't ask you about closing loopholes or -- >> yeah, sure, go ahead. >> are there any ways in which you all could maybe come to something and end up with one or two or three of these things and get some of the things that you want? >> yeah, so we just -- our chairman of the ways and means committee, dave camp, put out a specific discussion draft of tax reform, which does just that. it closes loopholes. instead of using the money for spending which increases the deficit -- he has $1.8 trillion in tax increases, half goes for spending. we're saying take the loophole closures and use it to lower tax rates to grow the economy.
loss since the bailout in 2008. 15 billion-dollar deficit for last year. he calls rbs the industry's least trusted leader, does the ceo. >> the bank. the largest bailout in europe. still owns the vast majority of the bank and is still pulling the strings. >> by the way, wire pros playing in the olympics? >> that is what the nhl is asking -- the players love it. >> the players love it and flagwavers love it, i am not fair -- sure it is fair to college athletes. >> we need to go to the ukraine. we spoke with the new leadership to read good morning. >> good morning. his name is arseniy yatsenyuk, the prime minister designate. inis about it -- to be voted as the interim prime minister of the country for the next few months. parliament is still chewing over this decision. >> how front and center is crimea to the management in kiev? >> very front and center. i was standing in the parliament here in kiev. meanwhile, in the crimea, the parliament had just been seized by a group of about 100 gunmen. i asked the prime minister about that and he said it is the first crisis he has to deal with
the chronic deficits in the national flood insurance program. they are sort of undoing their work to provide some relief. on the energy bill, the house is going to be taking up among other things a measure that would restrict the epa's restriction of carbon emissions by coal powered power plants. this is a big change in utilities. it would require any epa carbon solution limits to be based on existing technology. it is going to be a theme this week. there'll be several energy bills, just like there was a theme this last week about .xcessive regulation >> atrial bettelheim with cq roll call, we think you for your look ahead. as always, sir, thanks for your time. >> my pleasure. thanks. told both ase students and as a nation in terms of popular imagination is that there are all kinds of citizens and marches and demonstrations that occur. but they are really done by these famous, iconic people. basically, rosa parks, who was just so tired that she refused to get up from the bus in montgomery, alabama, and sparked a bus boycott, and basically, a young preacher, who even the president referred to
and deficit and entitlement reform and all of those things. this president likes his government super sized. this budget will never balance. and i think the president wants taxpayers to pay more so that washington can spend more >> what i read is he is asking for million in new spending. does that go anywhere? >> i don't think it does. last time he had a budget, not even any of the democrats voted for it. his policies make it harder to get back to work. >> $17.4 trillion is the debt clock. that is ridiculous. in three years from now, you will be $19 trillion? how is that acceptable to anybody? trying balance a book in washington, d.c. >> what we will see is the fastest growing part of the budget is interest on the debt. the president added $6.9 trillion in the debt. this continues to be a driving issue for the country. you know, we are not going to be able to sustain the safety net with this debt and interest. >> i think the viewers get it, too. what other republican options do we have? >> the options are to say let's deal with the issues we know get people back to work. we have a health ca
to go into deficit as well. russia is ofat to course oil prices. the government spends about 25% of gdp and to keep the budget in balance, capital economics needs 100 $10rice of about per barrel. they are able to get that just barely but as american fracking increases the amount of supply in the world, their chances of getting that are going down. a rush road ahead -- rough road at thisr the economy point. >> if it is such a rough road and all the weakness, why is he risking this? pretend to want to tell you what he is thinking, but maybe it is short-term here. compared to where the u.s. is. russia has a large amount of foreign exchange reserves. they can pay their bills for now even as the current account goes negative. resident who may be gambling if this lasts a short time, they could get in and get out without any further consequences, it is worth the risk. >> thank you. mike mckee. ofturn to another region uncertainty. president obama met with netanyahu at the white house yesterday. closelyries that work in the past and he looks cooked -- looks forward to working with the president
a dime to the deficit. >> the president also wants to expand the earned income tax credit for the working poor without children. his budget would also expand the child and dependent care tax credit and create automatic iras to help workers save for retirement but it's unlikely those plans will get through congress. he needs legislation to enact all of that and that does not look likely. >>> global markets are rebounding today as investors digest the situation in ukraine. even the dow jones flew out of the gate this morning. alison kosik is over at the new york stock exchange. how much have we bounced back today? >> quite a bit. what a difference a day makes. even the s&p 500 at a record high. the dow up 200 points, 205 points. all 30 stocks in the dow are in the green. very different story yesterday. it was a sea of red. we also saw that turn-around happening overseas, all the way -- there were those down arrows we saw yesterday in europe, asia, russia, they all turned up today. analysts say investors today aren't on red alert. it's not such a dire situation. i think when putin spoke and
a lot of money, in part, due to the sequester, and it's led to lowering and lowering the deficit. if you put that in the context of what the budget proposal suggests, it's only a modest increase in spend, talking about 56 billion, like you mentioned, split between defense, nondefense, and it's paid for. we established that the budget agreed to by patty murray and paul ryan, those spending levels stay in place, and you'll use a few other tax hike is to par for $56 billion to relieve s sequestrati sequestration. we have a piece coming up that shows nih will be funded at 30.2 billion. that, in real term money, equivalent to the level that george w. bush funded nih in 2002. we're not making people whole. we're lagging pretty badly. but as if you were to look at what republicans are saying, this is the most reckless spending possible. >> sam, on that note, the president say, our budge it is about choices, about values and this is expected to go nowhere, it's a moral document in the most sort of clear fashion from the white house. at the same time, you know, the president puts this out there a
budget deficits, and the economy tanked. the problem with barack obama is not that he changed bush's policies but rather that he did not change them. he took the worst of them and doubled down. he's added $6. trillion to the national debt. meaning that i had -- meaning that today's young people will have to pay back $56,000 plus interest per household to their future taxes for nothing more than to pay for this administration's overspending. he seized 1/6 of the american economy that provides our health care and well on the way to wrecking it for millions of american families, costing them their health plans, their doctors, their savings, and their security. his increased annual taxes by -- he's increased taxes, averaging about $4,00 for every household in america. he made a lot of promises that turned out not to be true. he promised that massive government spending would produce prosperity. instead average personal incomes declined $2,00 during his presidency and food stamp dependency's at an all-time high. nearly one in six americans is now living in poverty, including 22% of all
of the city as a whole so that we instead of seeing elderly new yorkers as a deficit, as a problem to be solved. instead we say the world is fundamentally a changing place, we're living longer, were living healthier and older new yorkers now are here in numbers that have surpassed anything in history. >> sreenivasan: one key ingredient to the initiative is listening to seniors, according to ruth finkelstein of the new york academy of medicine. she leads the initiatives private sector efforts. >> everything we do is grounded in the perspectives and voices of older adults. the first thing that they have to realize is we don't stand in the shoes of the people that were addressing and that we need first and foremost to understand the city through their perspective. >> sreenivasan: the program is now up and running in all five boroughs, including manhattan, where we met up with ed and sarah aarons. they cant imagine living anywhere but here. >> and i can't conceive of having the facilities and conveniences and the excitement as other places. >> the only two places he would like to live
